Can you believe it, we are almost at the midpoint of 2018 *gasp*?
2018 has been a bit of a roller-coaster ride so far, and a well-deserved break is just what we need. Now is the perfect time to relax and recharge, to nourish and pamper ourselves before we conquer the second half of the year.
So we rolled up our sleeves and got to work, rounding up the best Beauty & Grooming products we have got to offer. Check out the list below for all things you need to treat yourself from your head to your toe. (Spoiler Alert: None of them is "drink more water")
Short on time? Skip right to the end for the full list of products featured in this round up ;)
This multi-functional oil and serum consists of 14 anti-oxidant and omega-rich oils, rounded off with a fusion of concentrated botanical flower extract. Each goodness-packed droplet will sooth and heal damaged skin, prevent discoloration, and leaving your skin balanced with a healthy, radiant glow. If you have dry, chapped, fissured or stressed skin, this oil could be your skin-saver!
Sea Buckthorn Berry Seed Oil - the hero ingredient in this product - is well-known as a natural cleanser and exfoliator. It also helps to heal rashes, burns, and wounds, as well as slow down signs of aging.
To make the best of this product, simply mix it with your facial moisturizer before applying.

Himalayan Pink Salt Scrub is one of the latest trend in skincare, and this natural blend of himalayan pink salt, oils and vitamins will leave your skin soft and hydrated.
This all-natural body scrub exfoliates your skin, detoxifies the body, soothes sore muscles, and stimulates blood circulation. And as Himalayan Pink Salt is a natural antiseptic, this scrub targets skin problems such as eczema, acne or psoriasis. Salt also absorbs excess oil from your skin, so do give this scrub a try if you have oily skin!
And at only $16.90, this product is a steal!

Lemongrass and Patchouli is one of our favourite combinations of essential oils! Both are not only very effective at preventing skin infection and promoting skin healing, but also well-known as good natural toners and deodorizers.
Not only this skin-nurturing body wash has both lemongrass and patchouli essentials oils, it also contains a unique formula of olive and coconut oils, which will leave your skin not only cleansed, but also moisturized and glowing.
The calming and revitalizing aroma that comes with it is definitely a plus!
Our hands and nails go through plenty of wear and tear on a daily basis and are constantly stripped of their natural oils through the use of soaps, detergents or hand sanitisers. It only makes sense that we dedicate one step in our grooming routine to our hard-working hands.
The Jojoba oil in this product's unique anti-microbial and anti-fungal formula makes it easy for the nails, cuticles, and surrounding skin to absorb it deeply and stay hydrated. It also strengthens your nails, prevents cracking and promotes healthy growth.
We especially love the simple but smart application: twist the end of the pen a few times, and easily apply the oil with the brush tip!
ANIA Skincare is one of our first skincare brands, and it is also one of our favourites. We simply love their products!
This highly-raved-about clay mask consists of several amazing ingredients! 100% organic and hypoallergenic Rhassoul Clay helps to absorb grease particles and impurities, while the luxurious argan oil and Moroccan rosewater will leave you with supple, hydrated skin and a glowing complexion.
Using this mask overtime will reduce breakouts, blemishes, and blackheads, and even out your skin tone. It has even been tried-and-tested by the team at Naiise before! (Read our review!)
Just 5 minutes and you can see a visible improvement :)
24 Saturn’s SMOOTH EYES is a quick fix to firm and smooth skin around the eyes, making your eyes look fresher than ever. It is made of concentrated peptides gel, which gets absorbed very quickly, and do not clog pores.
For those who are not familiar with peptides, they are fragments of proteins which are essential building blocks in skin. The powerful peptides in this eye gel help to boost collagen around your eyes, smooth out wrinkles, increase firmness, and reduce puffiness.
AUOLIVE is a skincare brand for the modern day woman. Their multi-functional products help to combine multiple skincare steps into a simple 1-minute daily routine.
This award-winning product is definitely a go-to if you would like to shave some time off your night skincare routine. Its water-based gel-like texture allows it to effectively hydrates and revives your skin without leaving a sticky, uncomfortable feeling afterwards. Its formulation is packed with more than 80% of pure concentrated Marine collagen and Hydrogenated Lecithin - a much higher amount of active ingredients compared to your typical skincare products.
Night Booster boasts many benefits: hydrating, anti-aging, lifting, improving skin tone. Don't we love a good product that can do it all?
We hope this list introduces you to some of your future skincare favourites ;)
Here's to a revived, refreshed, and re-energized second half of the year!
